Extended Deadline for SABI Workshop Registration

Fri, Mar 3, 2023 1:40 AM

Dear colleagues,

Spaces are still available for both in-person and remote attendance at the upcoming Spatial Analysis for Biological Imaging (SABI) Workshop. Organizers of the workshop have extended the registration deadline to March 10, 2023. If you would like to attend the workshop, please register before the new deadline:

Please note that if you are not already a QBI Society member, you must first become a member before you can register for the workshop. After becoming a member, please be sure to also register for the workshop. QBI Society membership registration does not automatically register you for the workshop. 

Spatial Analysis for Biological Imaging is a two-day workshop to be held from Wednesday, March 29, 2023 to Thursday, March 30, 2023 at the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, London. The workshop is hosted and supported by the Quantitative Sciences Research Institute, Imperial College London, in partnership with the QBI Society. To date, the following invited speakers have been confirmed:

  • Carolina Wählby (Uppsala University)
  • Dylan Owen (University of Birmingham)
  • Thibault Lagache (Institut Pasteur)
  • Anthea Monod (Imperial College London)
  • Anca Grapa (Institute of Cancer Research, London)
  • Daniel Davis (Imperial College London)
  • Sripad Ram (Pfizer, San Diego)
  • Susan Cox (King’s College London)
  • Ed Cohen (Imperial College London)
  • Lekha Patel (Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico)

Workshop Aim: Imaging technologies play an ever increasing role in biomedical and clinical investigations as they allow the observation of important spatial processes. While such imaging approaches have undergone major technological developments through, for example, the development of novel detectors and sample preparation approaches, the analysis of the resulting data has often lagged behind. This is even more problematic as the amount of data that can and is being generated is very large.

Methods for spatial analysis, including spatial statistics, machine learning, and topological data analysis, hold significant promise to be able to resolve many outstanding analytical problems. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a means for leading researchers in bioimaging, digital pathology and histology to present their latest findings and also to, for the first time, bring these communities together as it is expected that exchange of ideas could be of major benefit to all sides.
